The following is a press release issued by Spendor.
October 3, 2017 | Buffalo, NY - Bluebird Music is pleased to announce immediate availability of the new Spendor A2 and A4 loudspeakers.
The Spendor A2 and A4 loudspeakers are completely new designs created for music lovers on a budget. They deliver class leading performance and are the most flexible, versatile and affordable loudspeakers Spendor has ever made.
The new A2 and A4 feature innovative trickle-down technology from the award-winning Spendor D7. The main drive units have been designed with Spendor's new EP77 Polymer cones. This new design allows the loudspeakers to partner beautifully with any amplifier and source equipment, regardless of price. The result is a dynamic, open and beautifully balanced sound with deep articulate bass.
The A-Line cabinets share the same modern proportions as the larger Spendor D7 and D9 loudspeakers. They're slim, compact and don't mind being right up against walls, (but don't necessarily need to be.)
Both loudspeakers are two-way rear ported designs featuring Spendor's highly-acclaimed 22mm wide-surround tweeter. The A2 uses a six inch woofer and the slightly larger A4 offers a seven inch unit. The loudspeakers look small visually but both pack a big punch.
Wiring is via a single set of binding posts. Spendor opted for a clean lean look without grill covers but a wire mesh grill protects the tweeters.
Retail Prices and Finishes
US retail prices are $2,395 for the A2 and $3,195 for the A4, ($2,895 and $3,995 Canadian). Both models are offered in black ash, natural oak and dark walnut real-wood veneers and both are in stock now at Bluebird Music for immediate availability.
